    Default $999 Apple monitor stand : YT vid

    Yes , you read that correctly. just the stand , US$999 .
    Vesa adapter plate , $199 . $199 for 5c worth of steel/alu .
    Apple have lost their marbles.

    There are Youtube vids of Apple announcing that price at a trade show(?) with less than favourable crowd reaction , a gasp from the crowd when the price is announced .

    Now, the funny thing is , Apple are doing there best to have the YT vids of this crowds reaction to the price taken down. They get a YT vid taken down, another pops up .

    It is a very nice monitor though, but yeah they could have thrown it in for free given the $5k pricetag of the screen.

    What they should have done is include the VESA adaptor, and the stand , then bump up the price to cover ACTUAL manufacturing cost of stand. No one is complaining about the price of the monitor .
    This is just bad publicity.... or is it :-)

    Company management , who write the cheques or have to give approvals for purchases, will be looking at Apple sideways , when confronted with requesitions for multiple $999 monitor stands .
